Match This! Skirt Edition

So, I have this skirt, which is a lime/neon green pencil skirt with a heather gray overlay that is supposed to resemble a crochet/macrame design. I'd like help finding shirts/shoes/accessories that might match it and help me put together an outfit. [more inside]

snowflake skirt needed

I would like to find a seamstress or tailor to make a custom pencil skirt for me that I can wear to work (so, stuffy business fabric). My attempts to google a solution have not been successful. I either find places that want to charge me $300 or more (nope!), places that do alterations (I need it made from scratch), or places that make custom clothing for men but not women, or brides but not non-brides. I am located in lower Manhattan but have a subway card and am willing to use it. Can anyone suggest where I can go to have a nice suit-like pencil skirt created for me?

Can I save this unevenly shrunk/stretched skirt?

I bought a bias-cut skirt made of t-shirt type fabric from Muji last week. It fit perfectly and draped beautifully and I was in love with it. Now I have washed it (40 degrees C, gentle setting) and it shrank really unevenly. It (just) still fits, but the hemline is dorky and uneven, and the skirt bulges weirdly at the seams. Is there anything I can do to save this? Rewashing and stretching? I can't return it to the store as I was travelling and there's no Muji here.

How to dress with a knee brace?

It's time to make the skirt work. Difficulty: Dude.

So a couple of friends are putting on a night called Skirt, and in the progressive / queer-positive spirit of the event, guys are being encouraged to come wearing one. I'd like to do it, and I'd like to make it look damn good. Skirt-wearers of MeFi, please help me. [more inside]

Shirt garters for skirt suits?

I'd like to keep my button-down shirts tucked in to my suits better, but I mostly wear skirt suits. Traditional shirt garters clip onto your socks, so those won't do. Any ideas? [more inside]

How to keep skirts from "walking up" tights when I'm walking

I enjoy wearing straight/pencil skirts with tights. If I walk more than a few steps though, the skirt fabric sort of gets caught on the tights (around my knees or quads), causing it to slowly creep up the front of my legs, and eventually bulge out at the crotch. Very...ungraceful. This seems to be true regardless of skirt length (above or below knee does the same), and regardless of skirt/tights fabric combinations. It doesn't happen if I go bare-legged. I've tried a variety of lengths of slips, and anti-static spray, but nothing has helped. What am I doing wrong?

You would think finding a piece of clothing seen on three different people withink a month would be easier...

My partner saw a cute skirt on someone a few weeks ago that she later decided that she might want to get a similar one. I've seen the same (or similar ones) two times since then, but have neglected to ask these strangers where they got it. [more inside]

Is "skirt" still used as slang for "woman"?

I'm helping edit a dictionary, and I just got to the skirt entry, which contains the definition "informal: women regarded as sexually desirable." Now, I'm in my fifties and I think of that sense as "before my time," but before I go and tell them to add "dated" I want to double-check with the hip young MeFi crowd: do you know anybody younger than Grandpa Simpson who talks about "chasing skirt"?
